The 68th Miss Universe Competition is hosted by the iconic host, Steve Harvel, and Olivia Culpo and Vanessa Lachey did a great job as backstage correspondents.
Prior to announcing this year’s winner, Harvey told the audience, “This is always a tough moment for me,” referring back to the time he accidentally announced the wrong Miss Universe in 2015. That ceremony’s rightful winner was Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines, but Harvey mistakenly bestowed victory upon the actual runner-up, Ariadna Gutierrez of Colombia. Apologies were made, and time eventually healed all wounds, but the legendary on-air flub will never be forgotten.
